For heavy cleaning, dilute 1 part BC-7000 with 5 parts of water. Apply to surface with a pressure sprayer. Rinse with clean water. For aluminum etch, use 12 – 64 oz BC-7000 to 1 gallon of water. Spray on and let sit for 2-3 minutes but do not allow it to dry on parts. Rinse while BC-7000 mix is still wet.
